Pumpkin Seed Granola
Yield: Makes 4 1/2 cups
Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, combine oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Combine maple syrup and oil in a small saucepan or a microwave-safe container and heat just until mixture is warm through. Pour the warm liquid over oat mixture and stir until oats are fairly evenly coated. Spread in a thin layer on prepared baking sheet.
Bake until evenly golden, about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool completely, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
your pumpkin seeds are unsalted, you may want to add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the dry ingredients.
You can make your own pumpkin pie spice for this recipe by combining 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon each nutmeg and ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon cloves.
